Injuries & City Edition Courts are now in NBA Live 19!

Postby Andrew on Sun Feb 10, 2019 2:46 pm

I've noted this in the Official Patch topic, but it's worth spotlighting in its own topic as well. In-game injuries have been added at long last, along with City Edition courts!

Note that injuries are disabled by default, so you'll need to switch them on in the Settings:

City Edition courts are selected simply by selecting the City Edition jersey for the home team. Here's the Miami Heat's City Edition court:

Really glad to see these in the game, and hopefully, they'll continue to have a presence in NBA Live 20. I know some people are saying it should've happened a long time ago, and I understand the sentiment, but I also think that it's great that it has now happened, not only enhancing the current game but putting things in place for the next one. More steps in the right direction, which is certainly welcome. It's also NBA-oriented content, which is very promising given the focus on The Streets the last couple of years.

Holy shit I just watched a video with an injury and I was expecting a Live 10 style injury that doesn't affect the game but I saw Mitchell Robinson take a legitimate ugly bad landing and grabbed his knee and got subbed out of the game. Man I am pleasantly surprised

As wrong as it sounds to say, it's a welcome sight. Injuries are an unfortunate part of sports, but they're something that sim-oriented games need to replicate, and they've been conspicuous by their absence in NBA Live for a long time. I'm really glad to see a vital sim element introduced back into the game at long last.

I don't know about this year's 2k, but the injury video here actually shows the injured player on the floor holding his knee. In 2k, all they ever showed was the player being helped off the floor, but you never saw the actual injury. Showing the injured player on the floor is a lot more realistic.

You do see players go down in NBA 2K as well. This is definitely one of the best injury animations we've seen in NBA Live, though.
